... shallow obstacles. No more Cat-Island-style blasting along at breakneck speeds ¼ mile off shore! Connecting the waypoint dots along depths as little as 6 feet is the norm here. There are large areas far from shore that are dry or nearly dry at low water, or are unsurveyed shifting sand bores and, thus, are altogether unnavigable. In contrast, as if making up for this extreme, the southern third of the west side of the island is ...
We arrived on Long Island after a short flight from Nassau. We were scheduled to land in Deadmans Cay but instead flew to Stella Maris at the north end of the island because Deadmans airport was closed due to a plane crash the day before. Fortunately no one was injured. For us it just meant a longer ride to our beach house in Lochabar Bay.
Our ride was at Stella to pick us up and off we went on the one main road that runs the length of ...
... down on FDPs and are refusing you to take any equivalent. Also you MUST attend two from the professor no exceptions or you fail. So say if the prof is offering 3, and you can only make one because you are on full time SAS trips (i.e., Cambodia), and you raise your hand and ask if you can do a homestay with a family and have that work (EVEN if it is the exact same idea as what the fdp was) she will tell you to leave the class and sign up for a different class where you can attend ...
By wednesday, the seas had calmed enough for us to make the trek across the Exuma Sound to Long Island. The winds were favorable so captain Pete set up his self steering device he's been tinkering with since he was back home in New Hampshire. It's still not perfect but it did steer us in the right direction for a good 45 minutes w/out anyone on the tiller. Pretty soon Strolla will be steering us across the ...
... 8217;s conch bar is also another must-see stop. It is a small tiki bar along the main road, located in Deadman’s Cay. Max himself does all of the cooking. There are many flavorful island drinks to enjoy while propped up at the bar, there is also various memorabilia decorating the entire cabana. The walls are filled with United States license plates, which give you a homey feel, and the unique collections found on the beach will ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chez Pierre Bahamas Long Island
Having returned from canceling our full stay at Chez Pierre, I would just like to make sure you understand the reality of this resort. It IS remote !!! It IS private. And it IS a long way from anything else of interest . Plan on using a whole day if you are scuba diving,as our group was, plus add the cost of taxi or rental car. MAINLY, IT IS BASIC !!!!
The perfect escape
We spent 5 days at Pierre's resort on long Island and we enjoyed the quietness and excellent food provided along with some sightseeing.
It has been the best value for money spot we've seen during our trip.
Almost everyone enjoys a vacation. A vacation that combines a new place with a new mode of vacation can be great and it can be a disaster. A little research helps remove the unknowns and eliminate the disasters. My wife and I just completed a five day stay in a new place with a new mode of vacation. Her research was exhaustive. And still, we were not prepared. Yet, we are going back, anxiously, as soon as we can. It's that good!
A Gem of a Place
I stayed at Chez Pierre for 3 days in June and itwas a fantastic experience!! The food and Pierre the host was the icing on the cake. I'll be back!
Had planned to visit Long Island for 6 days, & found this resort on the internet & decided to try it out. Upon arrival the owner showed us to our cottages, which were ideal sitting on the beach & the rooms were very clean & quaint with a fantastic view of the beach & water along with great sunrises, sunsets, & sparkling moon on the water. The owner was very attentive to our needs & extremely helpful to accomodate in every way. The meals were FANTASTIC to say the least. It's an ideal place to get away with the beautiful beach, water, & quiet surroundings. Upon our 5th day there we were caught on the island by Hurricane Frances & unable to leave the island. Again the owner, Pierre, was most gracious to extend any help neccessary, along with helping to provide family & friends back home with our status of safety & well being. It was quite the experience to sit through a hurricane, but Pierre made every effort to make sure we were well taken care of in the mist of the disaster. I could not have been better taken care of anywhere else! Even after the hurricane it's still one of the most beautiful places on the island, along with the greatest food you ever ate, & would miss so much if you hadn't stayed there.
The Bahamas is not the cheapest place to visit and so when I saw Chez Pierre advertised on the internet I booked it more because it was the only place we could afford rather than any other reason! We were visiting the Bahamas for my sister's wedding on New Providence Island and were keen to explore more of the Bahamas than just the main tourist capital.
Best Week Ever!!!!!
My wife and I were looking for a complete getaway, we didn't fish, we didn't rent a car, we didn't do much of anything and had the best time of our lives. Anne and Pierre were incredibly friendly and our cottage was clean, comfortable and cozy. We can't wait to go back and lay out on the beautiful beach for hours and eat 5 star meals from Pierre's kitchen!
My wife and I just got back from an outstanding vacation( 9 day) at Chez Pierre on lovely and non touristy Long Island.We stayed at Chez Pierre and had breakfast and dinner there each night.
I read a an excellent review about Chez Pierre, as well as a poor review, so I decided to try it out.
